June is fresh and new for 2009, and all the signs of summer are in the air. This month is nationally recognized as a time to educate people about safety, and PeopleFinders.com is proud to support programs that help keep you and your family safe all year long.
What Is National Safety Month?
The National Safety Council (NSC) started this event in 1996 to share their ideas about workplace safety, home security and safe driving techniques. Their mission is “preventing injuries and deaths at work, on the roads and in homes and communities”. Every June the NSC sponsors National Safety Month and focuses on a different safety related topic each week. We salute their efforts and encourage you to read their suggestions for living safely.
Safetyville USA is a replica of a city built in 1/3 scale to give young people a personalized view of the world around them. Tour guides accompany children through the park and offer safety tips about electricity, fire, bicycling, vehicles and other potential hazards. On Saturday, June 13th this Sacramento, CA based attraction hosts their annual Family Safety & Health Exposition from 10am – 4pm, and PeopleFinders.com will be there to hand out child identification kits and discuss ideas on how to keep your children safe. Join us at this free event to learn about child safety, predators and stranger danger in a fun and supportive environment.
More Safety Thoughts
You can find a variety of safety related tips and events throughout June. The month kicks off with National Sun Safety Week sponsored by the Sun Safety Alliance. June also boasts National Tire Safety Week and Lightning Safety Awareness Week to promote awareness of other dangers. People in the safety industry use this month as a time to discuss this important topic. Safety, Health and Environmental professionals are encouraged to attend the Safety Engineers Conference (June 28th – July 1st) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs proudly sponsors Fire, EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week (June 14th – 20th). Whether you hold a safety related job or not, this is a great time to think about tips and practices that will keep you secure during any season.
Our Ongoing Commitment
At PeopleFinders.com we know one of the best ways to stay safe is to be well educated. It’s a sad fact that many of the threats we face come from other people. Don’t let anyone victimize you – protect yourself with a Comprehensive Background Check to learn more about anyone you know professionally or personally, or find out if someone you may deal with has a Criminal Record on file.
Enjoy your summer and remember to practice good safety habits. Have a happy and safe June. Thank you for reading the PeopleFinders.com People Search blog.
